Comic Thoughts: POWERPUFF GIRLS Issues #2-4

Comics and MangaKristina PinoComment

Alright, so I slacked off after reading the first issue on keeping things updated on the blog. My bad! But really, that doesn't mean I'm any less interested in this book. Actually, things have heated up rather nicely.

After issue #1, we were left with Mojo Jojo deciding to stop being evil. It's obviously not going to last, and what's more, a bunch of other villains have shown up and apparently gone good. Because of dramatic irony, we readers know who is pulling the strings with their claws, but that doesn't make things any less interesting. The overall message in the arc is that people deserve second chances, even though it's generally crushed by the notion that "a leopard doesn't change its spots" in the case of these super villains. But we knew that was on its way.

The jokes continue to be funny, the captions continue to remind me of the narrator from the animated cartoon I knew and loved all those years ago, and the art continues to be pretty much perfect. I can't really praise this book enough, especially for fans. It's just silly fun, and totally worth it at US$1.99 per digital issue. Anyone can get into this comic, even new fans.
